WICB continues series of town-hall meetings to re-engage the public

Kingston, Jamaica — As part of continued efforts for the public to participate in the series of town-hall meetings, the West Indies Cricket Board will be in St. Lucia and Guyana over the next two weeks.

Fans in those two territories will get the chance to ask questions and make comments about the sport and how the region can merge its efforts to make the cricket industry more viable than it has been.

The town-hall meeting in St. Lucia will take place this coming Friday, July 17, at the Castries City Hall, starting from 6 p.m.

The town-hall meeting in Guyana will take place on Tuesday, July 22, in the Georgetown Cricket Club pavilion at Bourda Oval, starting from 7 p.m.

WICB President Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron and Vice President Emmanuel Nanthan will continue to host the town-hall meeting, which started in Barbados in May and was also staged in Dominica last month.

“We want to re-engage our major stakeholders,” said Cameron. “We want the public to become part of the decision-making and their inputs can prove to be valuable.

“We’re enthusiastic about continuing to use these sessions to listen to concerns and share information about where West Indies cricket is now, our strategic goals for the future and how the fans can impact upon the way we progress.”

The topics covered at the town-hall meetings have been wide-ranging. They have included selection matters, the operation of the WICB Professional Cricket League, player relations, player development, pitch preparation and governance issues.
